Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 08, 2014
The legal marketplace underwent a dramatic change beginning with the economic downturn in 2008, and lawyers are still learning to adjust. Corporations are “insourcing” legal work to in-house lawyers instead of outsourcing it to law firms, law schools are churning out thousands more graduates than the industry needs to fill current job openings, and law firms failures continue at every level from sole practitioner to large firms.
Julie A. Fleming, JD, principal of Lex Innova Consulting, will present a webcast on July 10, 2014 at 1 PM EDT called Rainmaking Reinvented: Legal Business Development in the Post-Recession Economy designed to teach lawyers how they should think about business development and what to do right now to build a thriving practice.
The webcast will cover why becoming a rainmaker is the wrong goal if you want to build a strong practice in the post-recession legal economy, and why you must become a RainMaster instead of just a rainmaker. It will also cover how you can grow a strong practice by nurturing client relationships, and the 3 R’s of becoming a RainMaster. Lawyers will also learn why relational capital is at the heart of their practice, and why the future belongs to entrepreneurs at law, not just attorneys at law.
